About this book

Introduction

`a very good book indeed...of great assistance to the busy practitioner, from whatever discipline...His account of the background to the present legislation governing contact with children in care is the most comprehensive I have read'. - Adoption and Fostering. `An authoritative and well-balanced text on the Children Act 1989. It will be of considerable assistance to students and practitioners in the social work and legal professions'- Peter Coysh, Social Policy and Administration. The Children Act has radically changed the daily work of all concerned with the welfare of children. This book, written by a foremost legal authority who has a sensitive understanding of the practices of social workers involved, is the only one to consider the Law, the Guidance issued by the Government, the Regulations and the problems likely to be experienced in daily practice. Social workers and lawyers too will find the book an invaluable guide to the complexities of the new legal framework.
